2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: CHRIS HERMANN COULD PLAY IN OUTFIELD FOR D-BACKS

The Arizona Diamondbacks will carry three catchers to begin the 2017 season which include Chris Hermann, Jeff Mathis, and Chris Iannetta; causing a headache for those in fantasy baseball trying to determine how the playing time shakes out.  Of course the only name with fantasy baseball value is Hermann who hit .284 with 6 home runs in just 148 at-bats last season but manager Torey Luvollo said he can see him playing in the outfield and some first base as well in order to get his bat in the lineup.  This is good news for anyone who wants to buy the very cheap Hermann in drafts this season and if he does carve out an everyday playing time role, some decent value can be had.  Those in two catchers formats needs to be more aware of this than those in singles but a Ryan Doumit-style impact could be had here if all breaks right.
